Cape Coral, FL asked in Construction Law for Florida

Q: Having a house built. 15 months so far moving slowly. GC changed the locks preventing me access to the house.

Had a roof leak friday causing damage to ceiling, walls, baseboards, insulation, etc. GC did nothing for 5 days to address the damage. GC keeps house at 85 degrees. Extremely worried about mold. GC claims he had sheetrock and insulation removed yesterday but when I went to check the locks were changed preventing me from seeing what they did or did not do.

A: What is your question? Arrange with the contractor to inspect the premises; that way the contractor can make sure it is secure. You don't want the place left unlocked, do you?
